AN  ACT  to  amend  section  fifty-three  hundred  and  fifty-two  of  the  Revised  Statutes 
of  the  United  States,  in  reference  to  bigamy,  and  for  other  purposes. 

J^e  it  enacted  by  the  /Senate  and  House  of  Kepresentatives  of  the 
ZTnited  States  of  America  in  C ongress  assembled^  That  section  fifty-

ritory or  other  place  over  which  the  United  States  have  exclusive 
jurisdiction,  hereafter  marries  another,  whether  married  or  single, 
and  any  man  who  hereafter  simultaneously,  or  on  the  same  day,  mar- 
ries more  than  one  woman,  in  a  Territory  or  other  place  over  which 
the  Uniteei  States  have  exclusive  jurisdiction,  is  guilty  of  polygamy, 
and  shall  be  punished  by  a  fine  of  not  more  than  five  hundred  dol- 
lars and  by  imprisonment  for  a  term  of  not  more  than  five  years; 
but  this  section  shall  not  extend  to  any  person  by  reason  of  any 
former  marriage  whose  husband  or  wife  by  such  marriage  shall  have 
been  absent  for  five  successive  years,  and  is  not  known  to  sucli 
person  to  be  living,  and  is  believed  by  such  person  to  be  dead,  nor 
to  any  person  by  reason  of  any  former  marriage  which,  shall  have 
been  dissolved  by  a  valid  decree  of  a  competent  court,  nor  to  any 
person  by  reason  of  any  former  marriage  which  shall  have  been  pro- 
nounced void  by  a  valid  decree  of  a  competent  court,  on  the  ground 
of  nullity  of  the  marriage  contract." 

Sec.  2.  That  the  foregoing  provisions  shall  not  aifect  the  prosc- 
eution  or  punishment  of  any  offense  already  committed  against  tlu- 
section  amended  by  the  first  section  of  this  act. 

Sec.  3.  That  if  any  male  person,  in  a  Territor}'  or  other  place 
over  wlrich  the  United  States  have  exclusive  jurisdiction,  hei-eafter 
coha-bits  with  more  than  one  woman,  he  shall  be  deemed  guilty  of  a 
misdemeanor,  and  on  conviction  thereof  shall  be  punished  by  a  fine 
of  not  more  than  three  hundred  dollars,  or  by  imprisonment  for  not 
more  than  six  months,  or  by  both  said  punishments,  in  the  disr ra- 
tion of  the  court. 

Sec.  4.  That  counts  for  any  or  all  of  the  offenses  named  in  sec- 
tions one  and  three  of  this  act  may  be  joined  in  the  same  infonnu- 
tion  or  indictment. 

Sec.  5.  That  in  any  prosecution  for  bigamy,  polygamy,  or  un- 
lawful cohabitation,  under  any  statute  of  the  United  States,  it  shall 
be  sufficient  cause  of  challenge  to  any  person  drawn  or  summoned  as 
a  juryman  or  talesman,  first,  that  he  is  or  has  been  living  in  the  prac- 
tice of  bigamy,  polygamy,  or  unlawful  cohabitation  with  more  than 
one  woman,  or  that  he  is  or  has  been  guilty  of  an  offense  purwshable 
•  by  either  of  the  foregoing  sections,  or  by  section  fiftv-three  hundred 


and  fifty-two  of  the  Revised  statutes  of  the  United  States,  or  the 
act  of  July  tirst,  eighteen  hundred  and  sixty-two,  entitled  "An  act 
to  punish  and  prevent  the  practice  of  polygamy  in  the  Territories  of 
the  United  States  and  other  places,  and  disapproving  and  annulling 
certain  acts  of  the  legislative  assembly  of  the  Territory  of  Utah," 
or,  second,  that  he  believes  it  right  for  a  man  to  have  more  than  one 
living  and  undivorced  wife  at  the  same  time,  or  to  live  in  the  prac- 
tice of  cohabiting  with  more  than  one  woman;  and  any  person  ap- 
pearing or  offered  as  a  juror  or  talesman,  and  challenged  on  either 
of  the  fores^oing  grounds,  may  be  questioned  on  his  oath  as  to  the 
existence  of  any  such  cause  of  challenge,  and  other  evidence  may 
be  introduced  bearing  upon  the  question  raised  by  such  challenge; 
and  this  question  shall  be  t/ied  by  the  court  But  as  to  the  first 
ground  of  challenge  before  mentioned,  the  person  challenged  shall 
not  be  bound  to  answer  if  he  shall  say  upon  his  oath  that  he  declines 
on  the  ground  that  his  answer  may  tend  to  criminate  himself;  and  if 
he  shall  answer  as  to  said  first  ground,  his  answer  shall  not  be  given 
in  evidence  in  any  criminal  prosecution  against  him  for  any  offense 
named  in  sections  one  or  three  of  this  act;  but  if  he  declines  to  an- 
swer on  any  ground,  he  shall  be  rejected  as  incompetent. 

Sec.  6.  That  the  F^resident  is  hereby  authorized  to  grant  am- 
nesty to  such  classes  of  offenders  guilty  of  bigamy,  polygamy,  or  un- 
lawful cohabitation,  before  the  passage  of  this  act,  on  such  condi- 
tions and  under  such  limitations  as  he  shall  think  proper;  but  no 
such  amnesty  shall  have  effect  unless  the  conditions  thereof  shall  be 
complied  with. 

Sec.  7.  That  the  issue  of  bigamous  or  polygamous  marriages, 
known  as  Mormon  marriages,  in  cases  in  which  such  marriages  have 
been  solemnized  according  to  the  ceremonies  of  the  Mormon  sect, 
in  any  Territory  of  the  United  States,  and  such  issue  shall  have 
been  born  before  the  first  day  of  January,  anno  Domini  eighteen 
hundred  and  eighty- three,  are  hereby  legitimated. 

Sec  8.  That  no  polygamist,  bigamist,  or  any  person  cohabiting 
with  more  than  one  woman,  and  no  woman  cohabiting  with  any  of  the 
persons  described  as  aforesaid  in  this  section,  in  any  Territory  or 
other  place  over  wlych  the  United  States  have  exclusive  jurisdic- 
tion, shall  be  entitled  to  vote  at  any  election  held  in  any  such  Ter- 
ritorv  or  othar  place,  or  be  eligible  for  election  or  appointment  to 
or  be  entitled  to  hold  any  office  or  place  of  public  trust,  honor,  or 
emolument  in,  under,  or  for  any  such  Territory  or  place,  or  under 
the  United  States.

ties by  a  board  of  live  persons,  to  be  appointed  by  the  President,  by 
and  with  the  advice  and  consent  of  the  Senate,  not  more  than  three 
of  whom  shall  be  memliers  of  one  political  party;  and  a  majority  of 
whom  shall  be  a  quorum.  The  members  of  said  board  so  appointed 
by  the  President  shall  each  receive  a  salary'  at  the  rate  of  three 
thousand  dollars  per  annum,  and  shall  continue  in  office  until  the

Territory  declared  vacant  by  this  a'ct.

REPORT 


OF 


THE     UTAH     COMMISSION. 


OffK  E  OF  THE  UtAH  CoMMISSIOX, 

Salt  Luke  City,  l(tah,  August  31,  1882. 

Dear  Sir  :  The  Coniniissioii  appointed  by  the  President,  under 
Ihe  ninth  section  of  "An  act  to  amend  section  5352  of  the  Revised 
Statutes  of  the  United  States,  in  reference  to  higaniy,  and  for  other 
purposes,*"  approved  March  22,  1882,  respectfully  report :  That  all 
the  members  of  the  Commission  met,  by  request  of  the  chairman,  at 
the  city  of  Chicag-o,  on  the  iTth  of  July,  1882,  and  remained  in  session 
several  days,  James  R.  Pettigrew,  of  Arkansas,  a  member  of  the 
Connoiss^on,  was  .appointed  temporary  Secretaiy-.  After  consultation 
and  an  extmination  and  consideration  of  the  laws  of  the  United 
States  and  of  the  Territory  of  Utah  pertaining  to  our  duties,  it  was 
determined  that  nothing  could  be  done  in  regard  to  the  registration 
of  voters  and  the  conduct  of  any  election  in  Utah  until  the  necessary 
appropriation  bills  then  pending  in  Congress  should  ])e  passed.  Ac- 
coi-dingly,  the  Commission  adjourned  to  meet  at  Omaha,  Neb.,  on  the 
15th  day  of  August,  where  the  Commissioners  met,  and  on  the  follow- 
ing day  connnenced  their  journey  to  this  city,  arriving  liere  on  the 
evening  of  the  1 8th  instant. 

On  the  day  following  a  session  was  liehl  for  the  transaction  of 
business,  Arthur  T^.  Thomas,  Secretary  of  the  Territory,  and  ex-otfici(j 
Secretary  of  the  Commission,  l)eing  present,  and  (me  or  more  sessions 
have  been  held  each  day  since.  A  strong  disposition  with  some  of 
the  non-Mormon  citizens  against  preparing  for  the  election  of  a  Dele- 
gate in  C'ongress  manifested  itself  before  the 'work  of  preparation 
therefor  was  commenced.  But  upon  investigation  as  to  the  condition 
of  aifairs,  and  an  examination  as  to  the  state  of  the  law  and  the  duty 
of  the  Connnission  thereunder,  the  following  preamble  and  resolution 
was  adopted  : 

AYi^p'"pas  it  is  i)rovided  })y  the  Revised  Statiites  of  the  United 
States  (section  1802)  that  every  Territory  shall  have  the  right  to  send 
a  Delegate  to  the  House  of  Representatives  of  the  United  States,  and 
as  it  is  further  provided '(section  25)  that  such  election  shall  be  held 
in  all  the  Territories  of  the  United  States  on  the  Tuesday  after  the 
first  Monday  in  November,  1882  :     Therefore, 

Jiesolved,  That  in  order  to  prepare  for  such  election  in  the  Ter- 
ritory of  Utah  on  the  day  so  established  the  Connnission  will  proceed 
forthwith   to   a])point   registration    officers  to   revise  the  registration 


REl'OJM'  OK   UTAH  (  ( ).M  M  ISSiOX.  7 

lists,  now  on  tile  in  the  otlice  of  the  clerks  of  e-dyh  of  the  .several  coun- 
ties, in  the  mainier  required  by-law. 

In  pursuance  of  this  resolution  the  Commission  proceeded  with 
g-reat  care  and  deliberation  to  prepare  "-rules  and  regulations'"  for  the 
guidance  of  the  registration  and  electic^n  officers  to  be  appointed. 
This  was  a  difficult  and  delicate  task,  because  of  the  necessity  of 
traming  the  rules  aiul  regulations  governing  the  registration  of  voters 
and  the  conduct  of  the  election  to  conform  to  the  principles  and  re- 
( jidrenients  of  the  act  of  Congress  as  well  as  the  laws  of  the  Territory. 
We  inclose  a  printed  co})y  of  the  same,  together  witli  the  forms  of 
affidavits,  etc.,  provided  ]:)y  the  Commission. 

The  matter  of  the  appointment  of  registrati(^n  officers  for  the 
several  counties  in  the  Territories  was  then  taken  up,  and  one  for 
each  county  has  been  duly  appointed  and  c;om missioned.  In  addi- 
tion to  these  a  deputy  or  assistant  in  each  voting  precinct  in  the  Ter- 
ritory will  be  immediately  apj)ointed.  Our  selections  have  and  must 
necessarily  be  influenced  in  a  considei'able  degree  by  suggestions  and 
reconnneiidations  of  leading  citi/ens  here  The  emlDarrassments  in 
this  direction  have  been  great,  but  the  Connnission  have  endeavored 
to  secure  the  very  best  available  men,  rejecting,  of  course,  all  persons 
who  are  ineligible  under  the  law. 

From  present  indications  it  appeal's  that  that  class  of  persons 
who  are  deprived  of  the  right  of  sufi[i-age  by  the  act  of  Congress  will 
not  attempt  to  register  or  vote.  These  will  number,  male  and  female, 
})robably  10,000  voters.  Man^r  of  the  non-Mormons  have  hitherto  re- 
frained from  voting,  l)ut  it  is  believed  that  at  the  November  electic^n 
they  will  cast  a  much  larger  vote  than  at  any  time  heretofore.  How- 
ever, the  business  of  the  Cominission,  as  understood  by  the  members 
thereof,  relates  not  to  the  rjuestions  of  parties  nor  cajididates,  but  to 
securing  so  far  as  possible  a  fair  registration  and  ^,\^^  im])artially  con- 
ducted election  under  the  law. 

As  before  suggested,  the  Commission  have  encountered  many 
embarrassments  and  complications.  The  o])])osition  made  at  the  out- 
set by  some  non-Mormons  of  respectability  and  influence  against 
holding  the  regular  election  for  Delegate  in  Congress,  as  required  by 
law,  in  November  next,  was  an  unpleasant  feature  of,  the  situation. 
But  th^re  does  not  appear  to  l)e  under  the  law  any  discretion  what- 
ever for  the  Commission.  The  law  demanded  an  election.  The  people 
of  the  Territory  were  clearly  entitled  to  representation  in  Congress, 
if  the  same  could  be  secured  thrcmgh  a  due  observance  of  the  restric- 
tions imposed  in  relation  to  bigamy  and  polygamy.  We  did  not  see 
how  we  could  exc-use  the  omission,  if  being  present  and  prejiared  to 
proceed  with  the  work  assigned  us  we  shtmld  not  even  attempt  to 
perform  this  manifest  duty,  and  so  it  was  decided  to  proceed.  It  was 
not  deemed  advisable,  even  if  the  ])ower  was  in  the  Commission,  con- 
cerning which  there  is  some  doubt,  to  commence  de  novo  a  registra- 
tion of  the  voters  of  the  Territory  ;  but  after  very  careful  considera- 


lion  it  was  decided  to  order  a  revision  of  the  existing  registration 
lists  in  September,  as  re^iiiii'ed  by  tlie  Territorial  law,  a])plying  to  the 
same  the  governing  jjrinciples  of  the  Edmunds  act. 

We  think  the  reguhirity  of  this  proceedijig  cainiot  be  questioned. 
Its  effectiveness  will  be  equal  to  an  entirely  new  registration,  and  we 
believe  the  results  c>f  the  election  Avill  so  demonstrate.  In  the  prepa- 
ration of  the  rules  and  I'egulations  to  govern  the  registration  and  the 
conduct  of  the  election,  as  before  stated,  the  labor  of  assimilating  the 
acts  of  Congress  and  the  local  election  law,  was  tedious  and  perplex- 
ing, involving  much  greater  responsibility  than  was  agreeable  to  the 
Commission  to  assume;  but  to  accomplish  the  results  lequired  by  the 
provisions  of  section  8  of  the  Edmunds  act  it  became  necessary  to 
use  all  the  powers  conferred. 

A  later  embarrassment  came  in  the  forjn  of  a  demand  on  the 
part  of  certain  non-Mormon  citizens  of  high  character  that  the  Com- 
mission shoCild  assume  jurisdiction  and  decide  the  local  statute 
authorizing  women  to  vote  to  be  illegal  and  void.  We  concluded 
that  it  was  not  competent  for  the  Commission  to  repeal  or  modify  that 
statute  in  the  manner  suggested;  that  the  principle  of  female  suffrage 
is,  in  no  respect,  in  (M)nllict  with  the  ]>ur]ioses  of  the  Edmunds  law, 
and,  therefore,  that  the  Commission  had  nothing  whatever  to  do  with 
the  subject;  moreover,  we  found  on  investigation  that  this  statute  had 
been  in  force  for  twelve  years  without  being  adjudicated  in  the 
Courts  of  the  .Territory  or  disturbed  by  Congress.  In  conclusion, 
])ermit  us  to  say  that  we  believe  the  results  to  be  reached  through 
the  careful  registration  ali-eady  insured,  and  the  impai-tial  election 
which  can  hardly  fail  to  ft)llow,  will  l)e  satisfactory  to  the  government 
and  the  country. 

In  closing  this  report,  it  is  due  to  the  Territorial  Secretary,  who 
is  ex-officio  Secretary  of  the  Commissi(Mi,  Mr.  Arthur  L.  Thomas,  to 
say  that  the  Commission  has  received  from  him  valuable  assistance 
in  its  work,  particularly  in  the  matter  of  the  selection  of  registration 
and  other  officers.

report  of  utah  commission.  9 

Office  of  thp:  Utah  Co:mmissiox, 
Suit  Lake  City,  Utah,  November  17,  1882. 

Sir  :  The  election  for  Delegate  to  Congress  having  been  held 
in  Utah  Territory  on  the  7th  inst.,  under  the  sujiervision  of  this  Com- 
mission, we  deem  it  proper  to  I'eport  to  your  department  the  progress 
made  up  to  this  time  in  the  discharge  of  our  trust. 

Since  our  last  report,  dated  August  31,  we  appointed  a  registra- 
tion officer  for  each  voting  precinct  of  the  several  counties,  and  estab- 
lished some  additional  polling  places,  with  a  view  of  affording  proper 
facilities  for  all  the  legal  voters.  In  order  to  conform  the  local  law, 
so  far  as  practicable,  to  the  requirements  of  the  act  of  Congress,  we 
\Aere  obliged  to  pi-onudgate  rules  and  regulations  for  the  judges  of 
election. 

We  next  appointed  jiulges  of  election,  three'for  each  polling 
place,  about  seven  hundred  and  fifty  in  number.  The  local  law^  re- 
quires that  the  judges  shall  be  selected  from  both  politii.'al  parties,  if 
})racticable.  Accorditigly  w^e  selected  them,  in  general,  from  ]>oth 
j)arties;  but  in  some  instances  we  were  obliged  to  appoint  all  of  th^m 
from  the  "Liberal  party"  or  from  the  "People's  party,"  because  there 
were  no  eligible  and  qualified  persons,  so  far  as  we  were  informed,  in 
such  precincts  belonging  to  the  other  party.  Commissions  were  sent 
to  each  of  the  judges  (copies  of  which,  together  with  tlie  rides  tJnd 
regulations,  are  herewith  inclosed). 

In  order  to  procure  such  information  as  we  deemed  useful  to  the 
government,  we  addressed  circulars  to  the  registrars,  and  from  their 
responses  we  learn  that  the  total  number  of  registered  voters  is 
33,266,  of  whom  18,772  are  males,  and  14,494  are  females.  From 
their  reports  it  appears  that  about  12,000  men  and  womtMi  ;ue  ex- 
cluded from  registration  by  reason  of  polygamy. 

Several  of  the  counties  of  this  Territory  are  quite  large  in  area, 
some  of  them  over  a  hundred  miles  long,  sparsely  inhabited,  and  diffi- 
cult of  access  by  mail  or  otherwise.  This  has  occasioned  considerable 
delay  and  extra  exertion  in  preparing  for  tlie  election  and  receiving 
the  returns. 

The  anomalous  condition  of  this  country  and  its  people,  together 
with  the  inherent  difficulty  of  adjusting  the  local  laws  to  the  act  of 
Congress,  are  such  that  they  imposed  on  us  great  care  and  delibera- 
tion, lest,  on  the  one  hand,  we  should  go  beyond  the  limits  of  the 
law,  or,  on  the  other  hand,  fall  short  of  a  vigcvror.s  ;iiid  efFective  dis- 
charge of  our  duties. 

In  the  absence  of  instructions  or  judicial  decisions  to  aid  us  in 
the  interpretation  of  the  law  prescribing  our  duties,  we  were  obliged 
to  construe  it  for  ourselves,  and  in  doing  so  we  endeavored  to  con- 
form, to  the  well-known  canons  for  the  construction  of  statutes,  having 
a  due  regard  for  the  evident  intention  of  Congreiss  in  this  act,  con- 
strued with  other  acts  of  Congress,  in  pari  materia.

10  REPORT  OF  UTAH  COMMTSSIOX. 

"•Polygamists  and  bigamists,"  and  persons  "cohabiting  with  more 
than  one  woman,""  are,  by  section  8,  to  be  excluded  from  voting  and" 
holding  office. 

Immediately  upon  addressing  ourselves  to  the  discharge  of  our 
duties,  we  were  obliged  to  consider  the  scope  and  extent  of  this  ex- 
clusion. 

l^id  Congress  intend  that  those  only  should  be  excluded,  who, 
at  the  very  time  of  the  registration  or  election,  were  then  living  in 
polygamy,  or  in  '"unlawful  cohabitation  with  more  than  one  woman?" 
If  so,  such  a  construction  would  render  this  section  a  perfect  nullity 
The  means  of  evasion  are  patent  to  the  dullest  comprehension.  We 
therefore  concluded  that  neither  the  letter  nor  spirit  of  the  statute  re- 
quired such  a  narrow  construction,  and,  in  our  published  "Rules  and 
Regulations,"  we  gave  the  exclusion  a  wdder  scope  and  application. 

We  found  that  the  local  law^  prescribed  a  certain  form  of  oath  to 
be  taken  by  persons  appljnng  to  be  registered  as  voters.  We  adopt- 
ed this  oath  verbatim^  adding  a  clause  in  regard  to  "polygamy  and 
bigamy,"  and  "unlawful  cohabitation,"  which  we  considered  it  proper 
to  do,  in  order  to  make  the  local  law  conform,  so  far  as  practicable, 
to  the  principles  and  requirements  of  the  act  of  Congress. 

In  short,  we  were  charged  by  the  act  of  Congress  with  the  duty 
of  excluding  from  the  polls  and  from  eligibility  to  office,  a  certain 
class  of  persons.  How  this  was  to  be  done  was  not  defined  by  the 
act. 

Were  we  to  exclude  only  those  who  had  been  convicted  of  the 
crime  of  polygamy  in  the  Courts?  This  construction  would  have  been 
derided  by  everybody  in  this  Territory. 

We  concluded  that  it  was  the  intention  of  Congress  to  leave  it 
largely  to  the  discretion  of  the  Commission,  to  determine  the  means 
of  discriminating  between  the  legal  and  illegal  voters.  This  we  en- 
deavored to  do  in  part  by  the  prescribed  oath,  which  sets  forth  the 
various  qualifications  of  a  legal  voter,  e.  //.,  those  in  regard  to  age, 
residence,  citizenship  or  naturalization,  and  freedom  from  the  dis- 
qualifications imposed  by  act  of  Congress. 

During  the  week  before  the  November  election  the  Commission 
made  an  ordei-  appointing  five  gentlemen  of  character  and  standing 
as  a  ]3oard  of  Canvassers  of  the  returns  of  the  election  for  a  Delegate 
to  the  Forty-eighth  Congress  (a  copy  of  which  order  is  enclosed 
herein).  On  the  16th  day  of  November,  1882,  the  said  Board  of 
Canvassers  met  at  the  rooms  of  the  Commission  and  canvassed  the 
election  returns,  from  Avhich  it  appeared  that  John  T.  Caine  had  re- 
ceived 23,039  votes,  and  Philip  T.  Van  Zile  had  received  4,88-i 
votes.  John  T.  Caine  having  received  a  majority  of  all  the  legal 
votes,  he  was  declared  duly  elected,  and  a  certificate  given  accord- 
ingly. 

Having  reason  to  believe  that  it  is  expected  by  the  Executive 
that  this  Commission  will  make  suggestions  as  to  any  additional  le- 


REPORT  OF  UTAH  COMMISSION.  11 

oislation  that  may  be  needed  to  carry  out^the  principles  of  the  law 
under  which  the  Commission  was  organized,  we  would  state  that, 
in  our  judgment,  a  marriage  law  enacted  by  Congress  would  be  an 
efficient  auxiliary  in  the  suppression  of  polygamy.  It  is  asserted, 
and  generally  believed  by  non-Mormons  in  this  T(  rritory,  that  plu- 
ral marriage  is  still  practiced  here  in  secret.  We  would  recommend 
that  Congress  enact  a  law  declaring  all  ■  future  marriages  iii  this 
Territory  null  and  void,  unless  they  are  contracted  and  evidenced 
in  the  manner  provided  by  the  act.  For  example:  That  all  mar- 
riages shall  be  solemnized  in  certain  designated  public  places;  and 
witnessed  by  such  persons,  and  registered  in  such  public  offices,  as 
to  make  the  proof  of  marriage  morally  certain ;  providing  also,  that 
the  person  officiating  in  the  marriage  ceremony,  together  with  the 
parties  and  witnesses,  shall  make  their  affidavits  against  polygamy, 
and  set  forth  the  time  and  place  and  other  particulars  relating  to 
the  marriage.  Or,  allow  marriages  to  be  solemnized  in  private;  but 
with  the  like  guarantees  of  registration,  affidavits," witnesses,  etc., 
and  in  either  case  providing  penalties  for  violation  of  the  act  by  any 
of  the  persons  concerned  therein.  In  making  this  suggestion,  we 
omit  the  details,  which  can  readily  be  supplied  by  reference  to  the 
marriage  acts  of  most  of  the  States. 

In  our  former  report  we  adverted  to  the  law  of  this  Territory 
conferring  on  women  the  right  of  suffrage.  This  law  was  enacted 
by  the  Territorial  Legislature  some  twelve  years  ago.  Of  course  it 
is  competent  for  Congress  to  repeal  or  annul  this  law.  Without  ex- 
pressing any  opinion  on  the  question  of  women  suffrage  in  general, 
we  are  satisfied  that,  owing  to  the  peculiar  state  of  affairs  in  Utah, 
this  law  is  an  obstruction  to  the  speedy  solution  of  the  "vexed  ques- 
tion." 

In  the  prosecution  of  polygamy  cases  here  it  is  difficult  to 
prove  the  first  or  legal  marriage.  We  would  suggest,  as  a  remedy, 
that  the  first  or  legal  wnfe  be  declared  by  act  of  Congress  a  compe- 
tent witness  in  such  prosecutions. 

Under  the  act  of  Congress,  by  virtue  of  whose  provisions  this 
Commission  was  appointed,  the  people  of  Utah  appear  to  be  put 
upon  probation  until  a  legislative  assembly,  elected  under  the  pro- 
visions of  the  act,  shall  meet  and  pass  the  requisite  laws  concerning 
registration  and  eleciion. 

The  election  for  members  of  the  legislative  assembly  will  be 
held  next  August,  and  that  body  will  hold  its  next  session  in  Janu- 
ary, 1884.  It  is  to  be  hoped  that  it  will  comprise  a  sufficient  num- 
ber of  members  who  will  be  disposed  to  bring  this  Territory  into 
harmony  with  the  sentiments  of  the  people  of  other  parts -of  the 
country. 

We  have  been  engaged  in  the  discharge  of  our  trust,  only  a  few 
months,  not  long  enough  to  fully  test  the  operation  of  the  law  as  to 
its  ultimate  results.  But,  so  far,  it  has  been  a  decided  success  in  ex' 


l2  REPORT  OF  UTAH  COMMISSION. 

eluding  polygamists  from  the  exercise  of  suffrage;  and  we  are  of 
the  opinion  that  the  steady  and  continued  enforcement  of  the  law 
will  place  polygamy  in  a  condition  of  gradual  extinction,  and  that 
the  domination  that  is  complained  of  by  non-Mormons  in  Utah  and 
elsewhere,  will,  at  no  distant  day,  be  much  ameliorated. 

In  accepting  the  trust  committed  to  us,  it  was  not  expected  by 
the  Commission,  and,  we  suppose,  not  anticipated  by  Congress  nor 
the  Executive  Department  of  the  Government,  that  the  desired  re- 
sults would  be  accomplished  at  once  nor  in  the  brief  space  of  a  few 
months;  but  there  is  reason  to  believe  that  the  operation  of  this  law 
and  other  influences  are  setting  strongly  in  the  direction  of  reform, 
and  that  the  hitherto  dominant  faction  will  be  supplanted  by  "Young 
Utah"  in  the  conduct  of  public  affairs. 

There  is  no  doubt  that  the  enactment  of  the  law  of  Congress 
under  which  this  Commission  was  appointed  has  agitated  the  public 
mind  in  this  Territory  to  a  remarkable  degree.  Hitherto  there  has 
been  very  little  public  discussion  of  political  questions,  and  in  gen- 
eral the  people  have  not  attended  political  meetings  in  large  num- 
bers. But  we  are  gratified  to  find  that  in  the  "campaign"  preced- 
ing the  November  election  for  Delegate  to  Congress,  the  people  of 
all  classes  have  manifested  a  lively  interest  in  public  affairs,  and 
have  attended  the  political  meetings  in  large  numbers.  Many  of 
these  meetings  have  been  held  by  both  parties  in  various  parts  of 
the  Territory,  and  able  addresses  have  been  delivered  by  speakers 
on  both  sides.  It  is  an  encouraging  sign  that  many  of  the  "Liberal" 
meetings  have  been  largely  attended  by  Mormons,  and  in  many  in- 
stances they  have  composed  the  chief  part  of  the  audiences.  It  is 
proper  to  add  that  so  far  as  we  have  learned  these  meetings  have 
been  characterized  by  exceptional  good  order,  good  humor,  and  de- 
corum. On  Saturday  night  before  the  election  both  parties  held 
large  mass  meetings  in  Salt  Lake  City,  and  vied  with  each  other  in 
the  display  of  national  flags  and  patriotic  music. 

Our  attention  has  been  called  to  the  propriety  of  our  recom- 
mending Congressional  legislation  of  a  radical  character.  But  we 
are  not  inclined  to  advise  such  measures,  unless  upon  further  ob- 
servation and  experience  the  wisdom  and  necessity  of  such  legisla- 
tion shall  be  demonstrated. 

The  area  of  the  Territory  is  84,000  square  miles.  The  popula- 
tion is  about  150,000,  about  40,<i00  being  non-Mormons,  many  of 
whom  are  socalled  apostates  from  the  Mormon  church. 

The  ])eople  are  generally  engaged  in  agricultural  pursuits. 
Prior  to  the  completion  of  the  Union  Pacific  and  Central  Pacific 
railroads  there  were  very  few  non-Mormon  residents  in  the  Terri- 
tory. Since  1869  the  business  of  mining  has  become  an  important 
interest,  and  from  that  time  the  total  output  is  over  $60,000,000  in 
silver,  lead,  and  gold. 

There  are  also  valuable  deposits  of  coal,  iron,  copper,  and  other 


REPORT  OF  UTAH  COMMISSION.  13 

minerals.  The  mines  give  employment  to  a  great  many  persons, 
and  hive  been  the  means  of  attracting  a  large  non- Mormon  popula- 
tion to  the  Territory.  Many  of  the  non-Mormons  (or  "Gentiles)  are 
doing  a  prosperous  business  in  banking,  mining  and  mercantile 
pursuits. 

The  legislation  of  Congress,  as  we  understand  it,  is  not  enacted 
against  the  religion  of  any  portion  of  the  people  of  this  Territory. 
The  law  under  which  we  are  acting  is  directed  against  the  crime  of 
polygamy,  for  the  extirpation  of  which  this  Commission  will  freely 
use  all  the  powers  delegated  to  us,  and  will  from  time  to  time  sug- 
gest to  the  Government  such  supplemental  legislation  as  may  aid 
in  suppressing  this  reproach  to  the  civilization  of  this  age  and 
country. 

We  trust  that  this  object  will  be  accomplished  without  resort- 
ing to  measures  destructive  to  local  self  government,  punishing  the 
whole  people,  the  innocent  as  well  as  the  guilty,  with  political  os- 
tracism. At  all  events  we  are  unwilling  to  advise  such  a  course 
until  the  act  of  (yongress  under  which  we  are  acting  shall  be  more 
fully  tested.  Besides,  a  proper  respect  for  the  legislative  branch 
of  the  government  would  restrain  us  from  impeaching  the  wisdom 
of  their  enactment  at  the  very  threshold  of  the  work  committed  to 
us,  and  long  before  the  time  expressed  in  the  act  of  Congress. 

If,  however,  the  next  session  ot  the  legislative  assembly,  elect- 
ed under  the  act  of  Congress,  shall  fail  to  respond  to  the  will  of  the 
nation.  Congress  should  have  no  hesitation  in  using  extraordinary 
measures  to  comple  the  people  of  this  Territory  to  obey  the  laws  of 
the  land. 

For  the  Commission  : 

Very  respectfully,

OKDER 


OF  THE  UTAH  COMMISSION  ADOPTED  TUNE  13,   1883. 


William  Jennings  having  appeared  before  the  Commission  on 
Monday,  June  11th,  1883,  and  made  the  following  statement  : 

"I  decided  not  to  register  last  year,  but  appeared  before  the 
Deputy  Registrar  of  the  Third  Salt  Lake  City  Precinct,  on  Satur- 
day, June  9th,  1883,  and  took  the  oath  prescribed  by  Rule  2  of  the 
rules  defining  the  duties  of  the  Registration  Officers,  and  was  duly 
re2:istered.  Subsequently  I  received  notice  from  the  Deputy  Re- 
gistrar that  my  name  had  been  stricken  from  the  list  of  voters  of 
said  precinct  by  the  direction  of  Thomas  C.  Bailey,  Registration 
Officer  of  Salt  Lake  County.  I  entered  into  a  polygamous  relation 
prior  to  July  .1st,  1862,  and  continued  in  that  relation  until  about 
the  year  1871,  at  which  date  my  first  wife  died,  and  I  have  since 
lived  and  cohabited  with  but  one  wife.  I,  therefore,  claim  that  I 
have  not  entered  into  any  marriage  relation  in  violation  of  law,  and 
that  I  am  entitled  to  have  my  name  appear  on  the  list  of  registered 
voters  of  said  precinct,  and  ask  that  the  action  of  the  Registration 
Officer  for  said  county  be  reversed,  and  my  name  restored  to  the 
list  of  voters  of  said  precinct." 

After  due  consideration  by  the  Commission  it  is  ordered  "that 
said  William  Jennings  is  within  the  meaning  of  Section  8  of  the 
Act  of  Congress  of  March  22d,  1882,  disqualified  as  a  voter,  and  is 
therefore  not  entitled  to  register  or  vote." 


.THE  AUGUST  ELECTION,  1883. 


ORDER  OF  THE  COMMISSION. 


Report  of  the  Special  Committee,  and  the  order  of  the  Com- 
mission, adopted  June  13,  1883. 

Salt  Lake  City,  June  J3,  1883. 
Alex.  Mamsey^  Chairman  of  the  Commission: 

Sir: — Your  ( committee  appoinied  on  May  7th  to  examine  and 
report  in  relation  to  the  offices  to  be  filled  at  the  August  election 
1883,  respectfully  report :  That  there  are  to  be  elected  members 
of  the  Legislative  Assembly  in  all  the  Legislative  Districts  of  the 
Territory;  and  also  certain  county  and  precinct  officers. 

As  to  those  officers  who  should  have  been  elected  at  the  August 
election  in  1882,  we  find,  that  by  law,  some  of  them  are  to  be  elect- 
ed for  a  certain  number  of  years;  some  for  a  given  term  "and  until 
their  successors  are  qiialifiecV^'  and  some  for  a  given  term  and 
"until  their  successors  are  elected  and  qualified^ 

In  regard  to  vacancies,  and  the  time  and  manner  of  filing  them, 
the  local  laws  are  difficult  of  construction  in  view  of  subsequent 
Congressional  legislation.  But  in  deference  to  the  decision  of  the 
Supreme  Court  of  Utah,  as  to  vacancies,  in  the  case  of  Kimball  vs. 
Richards  in  1882,  sustaining  the  appointment  of  the  Governor  of 
Utah,  we  are  of  the  opinion  that  all  offices  which  should  have  been 
filled  at  the  general  election  in  1882,  are  to  be  filled  at  the  next 
general  election  in  August,  1883,  for  the  unexpired  term. 

We  are  further  of  the  opinion  that  the  offices  of  Territorial 
Superintendent  of  District  Schools,  Territorial  Auditor  of  Public 
Accounts,  Territorial  Treasurer,  and  Commissioners  to  locate  uni- 
versity lands,  are  under  the  Organic  Act  of  the  Territory  of  Utah, 
to  be  appointed  by  the  Governor  with  the  assent  of  the  Legislative 
Council,  and  that  the  acts  of  the  Legislative  Assembly  providing 
for  filling  those  offices  by  an  election  of  the  people,  are  in  conflict 
with  said  Organic  Act,  and  are  therefor  invalid. 

Respectfully, 

A.  B.  CARLTON, 
G.  L.  GODFREY,

A  LETTER 


Salt  Lake  City,  Utah,  August  24th,  1883. 
Hex.  H.  M.  Teller,  Secretary  of  the  Interior^  Washington^  D.  C: 

Sir — I  have  the  honor  to  inform  you  that  the  Report  upon  the 
Registration  of  voters  in  June  last,  the  election  for  Members  of  the 
Legislative  Assembly,  and  other  officers,  held  on  the  6th  day  of  the 
present  month,  in  this  Territory,  and  the  full  proceedings  of  this 
Commission  in  connection  therewith,  will,  from  necessity,  be  de- 
layed for  a  time.  However,  we  think  it  will  be  proper  to  sav  now, 
in  advance  of  our  regular  report,  that  the  law  known  as  the"  "Ed- 
munds Act,"  so  far  as  we  have  been  responsible  for  its  execution, 
has  been  carefully,  but  rigidly  enforced  this  year,  as  it  was  last. 
No  person  living  in  polygamy  has  been  permitted  to  vote  at  any 
election, or  to  be  voted  for,  for  any  office;  and  while  only  three 
convictions  in  prosecutions  against  polygamists  under  the  Act  of 
1862,  have  been  secured,  nearly  or  quite  fifteen  thousand  persons 
have  been  disfranchised  on  account  of  polygamic  practices,  through 
the  operations  of  the  law  as  administered  by  this  Commission. 

Ten  suits  for  damages  have  been  instituted  against  the  Com- 
mission, by  certain  Mormons  whose  names  were  rejected  at  the  first 
registration,  and  who  were  not  permitted  to  vote  at  the  election  in 
November,  1882,  because  they  refused  to  comply  with  the  Rules 
and  Regulations,  prescribed  under  the  law  by  the  Commission,  for 
the  proof  of  the  eligibility  of  all  voters.  It  is  understood  that  these 
suits  have  been  brought  for  the  purpose,  primarily,  of  testing  the 
constitutionality  of  this  law,  and  secondarily,  to  determine  the  legal- 
ity of  our  acts  thereunder. 

The  first  hearing  in  these  cases  will  be  had  early  in  October, 

It  is  deemed  advisable  to  withhold  our  regular  report  until  the 
court  here  shall  have  heard  and  passed  upon  these  cases. 

Moreover,  certain  phases  of  the  general  situation  here  have  pre- 
sented themselves  through  the  recent  election,  and  in  other  ways, 
in  the  present  year,  which  will  require  to  be  carefully  considered 
before  the  Commission  will  be  prepared  to  make  the  full  and  com- 
prehensive report  which  the  President  and  Congress  will  undoubt- 
edly desire,  and  the  Commission  will  wish  to  make.  Such  a  report 
will  be  prepared  and  forwarded,  in  ample  time  for  the  use  of  the 
President  in  communicating  with  Congress  at  the  commencement 
of  its  session,  in  December  next. 

Very  respectfully,  your  obedient  servant, 

ALEXANDER  RAMSEY. 
By  order  of  the  Commission.

ANNUAL    REPORT. 


Washington,  D.  C,  October  30,  1883. 

SiE  :  The  Board  of  five  Commissioners  appointed  by  the  Presi- 
dent under  the  provisions  of  the  act  of  March  22,  1882,  entitled  "An 
act  to  amend  section  5352  of  the  Revised  Statutes  of  the  United 
States  in  reference  to  bigamy,  and  for  other  purposes,"  respectfully 
submit  the  following  report: 

Before  proceeding  with  the  account  of  the  transactions  of  the 
Board  since  our  last  report  to  the  Interior  Department,  we  deem  it 
advisable  to  make  a  brief  statement  of  the  former  legislation  of 
Congress  in  relation  to  bigamy  or  polygamy.  There  is  no  doubt 
that  "plural  marriage"  was  practiced  to  a  considerable  extent 
among  the  Mormons  from  the  time  of  their  first  immigration  to  the 
Great  Salt  Lake  Valley  in  1847.  It  was  in  1852  that  it  was  first 
publicly  proclaimed  as  a  tenet  of  the  church  by  alleged  "divine 
revelation"  by  Brlgham  Young,  president  of  the  church,  and  gov- 
ernor of  Utab  Territory  under  the  appointment  of  President  Fill- 
more. 

After  the  lapse  of  ten  years,  namely,  on  July  1,  1862,  an  act 
was  passed  by  Congress  which  provides  that  "every  person  having  a 
husband  or  wife  living,  who  marries  another,  whether  married  or 
single,  in  a  Territory  or  other  place  over  which  the  United  States 
have  exclusive  jurisdiction,  is  guilty  of  bigamy,  and  shall  be  pun- 
ished by  a  fine  of  not  more  than  $500,  and  by  imprisonment  for  a 
term  not  more  than  five  years." 

Under  this  law  there  have  been  very  few  convietions,  not  more 
than  three,  as  we  are  advised,  for  a  period  of  over  twenty  years, 
which  is  due  largely  to  the  fact  that  a  great  majority  of  the  com- 
munity are  in  sympathy  with  the  accused.  In  this  connection  we 
deem  it  proper  to  say  that  no  reflection  is  intended  to  be  cast  upon 
the  judges  or  other  officers  of  justice  in  Utah  appointed  by  the 
Government.  Doubtless  they  have  done  the  best  they  could  with 
such  means  and  legal  measures  as  were  furnished  by  the  Govern- 
ment. 


THE   TERHITORY   OF    UTAH. 


The  law  of  March  22, 1882,  is  much  more  comprehensive.  In  ad- 
dition to  repeating  the  same  penalty  for  entering  into  the  polygamic 
relation,  it  amends  the  former  law  by  providing  a  penalty  "against 
any  man  who  simultaneously,  or  on  the  same  day,  marries  more 
than  one  woman,"  such  cases  having  occurred  in  Utah,  and  the  for- 
mer law  not  providing  for  such  "simultaneous"  nuptials.  Also,  the 
present  law  provides  a  penalty  for  "unlawful  cohabitation,"  which 
was  intended  to  meet  the  case  of  a  continuance  of  the  polygamic 
relation,  for  it  was  held  by  the  courts,  under  the  former  law,  that  a 
man  living  in  a  polygamic  relation  could  not  be  convicted  after 
the  three  years'  statute  of  limitations  had  expired  from  the  time  of 
entering  into  the  plural  marriage.  Besides,  new  sections  are  intro- 
duced into  the  present  act  relating  to  the  qualification  of  jurors, 
amnesty  to  offenders,  and  the  legitimation  of  children  born  before 
January  1,  1883. 

With  the  execution  of  those  provisions  of  the  act  thus  far  ad- 
verted to,  this  Commission  have  nothing  to  do;  and  there  is  a  general 
misapprehension  in  the  public  mind  as  to  the  extent  of  our  authority, 
which,  though  important  and  difficult  of  execution,  is  much  more 
circumscribed  and  limited  than  many  suppose.  Our  whole  author- 
ity is  set  forth  in  the  ninth  or  last  section  of  the  law,  which  is  to  be 
construed  in  connection  with  the  preceding  section,  and  per- 
haps some  other  sections  of  the  act. 

The  eighth  section  provides  that — 

No  polygamist,  bigamist,  or  any  person  cohabiting  with  more  than  one  woman, 
and  no  woman  cohabiting  with  any  of  the  persons  described  as  aforesaid  in  this  sec- 
tion, in  any  Territory  or  other  place  over  which  the  United  States  have  exchisive 
jurisdiction,  shall  be  entitled  to  vote  at  any  election  held  in  any  such  Territory  or 
other  piacCj  or  be  eligible  for  election  or  appointment  to.  or  be  entitled  to  hold  any 
office  or  place  of  public  trust,  honor,  or  emolument  in,  under,  or  for  any  such  Terri- 
tory or  place,  or  under  the  United  States.  • 

The  ninth  and  last  section  is  as  follows: 

Sec.  9.  That  all  the  registration  and  election  offices  of  every  description  in  the 
Territory  of  Utah  are  hereby  declared  vacant,  and  each  and  every  duty  relating  to 
the  registration  of  voters,  the  conduct  of  elections,  the  receiving  or  rejection  of  votes, 
and  the  canvassing  and  returning  of  the  same,  and  the  issuing  of  certificates  or  other 
evidence  of  election,  in  said  Territory,  shall,  until  other  provisions  be  made  by  the 
legislative  assembly  of  said  Territory,  as  is  hereinafter  by  this  section  provided,  be 
performed,  under  the  existing  laws  of  the  United  States  and  said  Territory,  by 
proper  persons,  who  shall  be  appointed  to  execute  such  offices  and  perform  such 
duties  by  a  Board  of  five  persons,  to  be  appointed  by  the  President,  by  and  with  the 
advice  and  consent  of  the  Senate,  not  more  than  three  of  whom  shall  be  members  of 


112  THE  TERRITORY  OF   UTAH. 

one  political  party,  and  a  majority  of  whom  shall  be  a  quorum.  The  members  of 
said  Board  so  appointed  by  the  President  shall  each  receive  a  salary  at  the  rate  of 
three  thousand  dollars  per  annum,  and  shall  continue  in  office  until  the  legislative 
assembly  of  said  Territory  shall  make  provision  for  filling  said  offices  as  herein 
authorized.  The  Secretary  of  the  Territory  shall  be  the  Secretary  of  said  Board,  and 
keep  a  journal  of  its  proceedings,  and  attest  the  action  of  said  Board  under  this  sec- 
tion. The  canvass  and  return  of  all  the  votes  at  elections  in  said  Territory  for 
members  of  the  legislative  assembly  thereof  shall  also  be  returned  to  said  Board, 
which  shall  canvass  all  such  returns  and  issue  certificates  of  election  for  those  persons 
who,  being  eligible  for  such  election,  shall  appear  to  have  been  lawfully  elected, 
which  certificates  shall  be  the  only  evidence  of  the  right  of  such  persons  to  sit  in  such 
assembly:  Provided,  That  said  Board  ol  five  persons  shall  not  exclude  any  person 
otherwise  eligible  to  vote,  from  the  polls  on  account  of  any  opinion  such  person  may 
entertain  on  the  subject  of  bigamy  or  polygamy,  nor  shall  they  refuse  to  count  any 
such  vote  on  account  of  the  opinion  of  the  person  casting  it,  on  the  subject  of  bigamy 
or  polygamy,  but  each  house  of  such  assembly,  after  its  organization,  shall  have 
power  to  decide  upon  the  election  and  qualifications  of  its  members.  And  at  or 
after  the  first  meeting  of  said  legislative  assembly,  whose  members  shall  have  been 
elected  and  returned  according  to  the  provisions  of  this  act,  said  legislative  assembly 
may  make  such  laws,  comformable  to  the  organic  act  of  said  Territory,  and  not  in- 
consistent with  other  laws  of  the  United  States,  as  it  shall  deem  proper  concerning 
the  filling  of  the  offices  in  said  Territory  declared  vacant  by  this  act. 

It  will  thus  be  seen  that  the  duties  of  this  Comiriission  appertain 
only  to  matters  of  registration  and  election  and  eligibility  to  office, 
while  the  punishment  of  the  crime  of  polygamy  is  left,  as  under  the 
former  law,  to  the  courts  of  justice. 

Nor  are  we  invested  wath  legislative  authority.  Our  powers  are 
of  a  quasi- judicial  and  administrative  character.  But  from  the  gen- 
eral terms  of  many  parts  of  the  act,  we  have  been  obliged  to  exercise 
a  considerable  latitude  of  discretion  to  make  the  act  effectual,  con- 
fining ourselves  within  the  limits  of  the  law,  according  to  our  best 
judgment. 

We  have  heretofore  communicated  to  the  Department  of  the  In- 
terior the  difficulties  we  encountered  on  entering  upon  our  duties  last 
year;  also  the  measures  we  adopted  for  excluding  polygamists  from 
registration  and  from  the  polls,  and  that  we  had  excluded  some 
twelve  thousand  men  and  women  from  registration  and  voting  by 
reason  of  their  disqualification  under  this  act.  Pursuing  the  same 
policy,  we  have  had  equal  success  ^t  the  general  election  held  on 
the  6th  of  August,  1883,  in  excluding  polygamists  from  the  polls. 

The  theory  of  the  act  of  March  22, 1882,  appears  to  be  this:  that 
a  discrimination  between  those  Mormons  who  practice  polygamy 
and  those  who  do  not,  placing  a  stigma  upon  the  former  and  depriv- 


THE   TERRITORY    OF   UTAH.  II3 

ing  them  of  the  right  of  suffrage  as  well  as  the  right  to  hold  office, 
while,  on  the  other  hand,  an  inducement  is  held  out  to.  the  latter 
class,  that  by  abstaining  from  the  polygamic  relation  they  'will  enjoy 
all  the  political  rights  of  American  citizens,  would  in  time  have  the 
effect  of  inducing  great  numbers  of  the  Mormon  people  to  refrain 
from  plural  marriage. 

While  such  considerations  are  not  likely  to  have  much  effect  upon 
the  elderly  men  who  already  have  a  plurality  of  wives  and  several 
families  of  children,  they  must  have  great  weight  with  the  young- 
men  of  the  Territory,  many  of  whom  are  ambitious  and  aspiring, 
and  would  not  like  voluntarily  to  embrace  political  ostracism. 

The  leading  Mormons,  who  are  generally  in  polygamy,  evi- 
dently perceive  this  tendency;  and,  therefore,  ever  since  the  pas- 
sage of  this  act,  they  have  assiduously  taught  their  people  that  this 
measure  is  transient,  and  that  it  will  soon  be  set  aside  by  the  Federal 
courts  or  by  the  action  or  non-action  of  Congress. 

So  far  as  we  are  advised,  very  few,  if  any,  jllegal  votes  have 
been  cast  in  Utah  since  the  Commission  took  charge  of  registrations 
and  elections  in  August,  1882. 

As  to  the  declared  objects  of  the  act  of  Congress  as  therein  set 
forth,  so  far  as  appertains  to  our  duties,  it  is  not  denied  that  the 
operation  of  the  act  has  been  eminently  successful;  that  is  to  say, 
the  polygamists  have  all  been  excluded  from  the  polls  and  from 
eligibility  to  office.  Considering  that  during  the  twenty  years  since 
the  anti-polygamy  act  of  1862  was  passed,  the  penalties  of  that  law 
have  been  enforced  against  not  exceeding  three  persons,  it  would 
seem  that  in  the  enforcement  of  the  present  law  against  some 
twelve  thousand  polygamists  who  have  been  excluded  from  the 
polls,  it  must  justly  be  regarded  that  the  act  has  been  fully  and  suc- 
cessfully executed. 

Before  passing  from  this  topic,  we  deem  it  proper  to  observe  that 
no  person  well  informed  in  regard  to  Utah  affairs,  could  reasonably 
have  expected,  at  the  passage  of  the  act,  that  there  would  be  an  im- 
mediate change  in  the  political  situation,  nor  that  it  would  have  an 
immediate  effect  in  destroying  the  practice  of  polygamy;  but  the 
act  must  necessarily  have  a  strong  influence  in  that  direction.  The 
very  existence  of  the  law  disfranchising  the  polygamists  must  tend 
to  destroy  their  influence,  whenever  it  is  understood  that  this  is  to 
be   a  permanent  discrimination.     Those    Mormons    who  have    the 


1 14  TI^    TERRITORY   OF    UTAH.  7 

ballot  will  after  a  time  be  conscious  of  a  power  which  they  will  be 
unwilling  to  use  forever  at  the  bidding  of  those  who  have  it  not. 
The  fact,  also,  that  it  will  be  necessary  to  the  preservation  of  the 
political  influence  of  the  "People's  party"  (as  the  Mormons  style 
themselves)  to  have  a^a^ge  body  of  their  members  who  are  not 
polygamists,  must  tend  in  time  to  weaken  the  practice  of  polygamy, 
for  every  married  Mormon  who  takes  but  one  plural  wife  loses  three 
votes  for  his  party — his  own  and  those  of  his  two  wives  (woman  suf- 
frage being  established  by  law  in  Utah).  iVnother  consideration, 
already  adverted  to,  the  influence  upon  the  young  men  and  the 
rising  generation,  is  entitled  to  great  weiglit.  Seeing  all  the  offices 
of  honor,  trust,  and  profit,  such  as  Delegate  to  Congress,  members 
of  the  legislative  assembly,  probate  judges,  clerks  of  the  county 
courts,  sheriff's,  and  others,  many  of  them  quite  lucrative,  held  by 
monogamists,  w^hil^  polygamists  are  wholly  excluded,  the  aspiring- 
young  men  of  the  Territory  would  present  an  anomaly  in  human 
nature  if  they  should  fail  to  be  strongly  influenced  against  going 
into  a  relation  which  thus  subjects  them  to  political  ostracism  and 
fixes  on  them  the  stigma  of  moral  turpitude. 

The  difficulty  of  the  situation  can  be  l)etter  understood  from  the 
fact  that  among  the  orthodox  Mormons  of  Utah  polygamy  is  a  part 
of  their  religious  faith,  and  while  but  a  small  per  cent,  of  the  whole 
adult  Mormon  population  have  actually  entered  into  the  polygamic 
relation,  yet  all  the  faithful  believe  in  it  as  a  divine  revelation.  The 
Mormons  believe  in  the  Old  Testament,  the  New  Testament,  and  a 
great  deal  besides,  namely,  the  Book  of  Mormon,  and  divers  so- 
called  revelations  claimed  to  have  been  received  by  the  prophet 
Joseph  Smith  and  his  successors,  Brigham  Young  and  John  Taylor^ 
which  are  mostly  printed  in  their  Book  of  Doctrine  and  Covenants. 
Among  these  so-called  revelations  is  one  in  favor  of  a  plurality  of 
wives. 

That  a  doctrine  and  practice  so  odious  throughout  Christendom 
vshould  have  been  upheld  so  many  years  against  the  laws  of  Congress 
and  the  sentiments  of  the  civilized  world,  is  one  of  the  marvels  of 
the  nineteenth  century,  and  can  be  scarcely  am>reciated  even  by 
those  who  are  familiar  with  the  w^orld's  histor}*-  in  relation  to  the 
difficulties  of  governmental  control  or  suppression  of  religious  fa 
naticism. 

Certainly,  no  government  can  permit  a  violation  of  its  laws  under 
the  guise  of  religious  freedom;   and  while  Congress   may  not  legis- 


THE   TERRITORY   OF    UTAH.  US' 

jate  as  to  mere  matters  of  opinion^  yet  it  may  denounce  and  punish 
as  crimes  those  actions  which  are  in  violation  of  social  duties  or 
subversive  of  good,  order.  It  was  upon  this  principle  that  the 
Supreme  Court  of  the  United  States  held  the  anti-polygamy  law  of 
1802  to  be  valid  and  constitutional.  (Reynolds  vs.  The  United 
States,  8  Otto.)  .,^^S;i, 

The  right  of  Congress  to  suppress  this  great  evil  is  undoubted. 
It  is  equally  plain  that  the  dignity  and  the  good  name  of  this  great 
Government  among  the  nations  of  the  earth  demand  such  Con- 
gressional action  as  shall  effectually  eliminate  this  nati(»nal  disgrace 

In  our  report  of  November  17, 1882,  we  made  several  recommen-  ^ 
dations,  which  were  substantially  incorporated  into  Senate  bill  No. 
3238  of  the  last  session  of  Congress,  reported  by  the  Judiciary  Com- 
mittee, December  13,  1882.  This  bill,  however,  contains  some  other 
provisions  besides  those  mentioned,  and  we  hope  that  the  proposed 
measure  as  a  whole  will  receive  the  favorable  consideration  of 
Congress  at  its  next  session.  The  recommendations  above  referred 
to — re-submitted  as  a  part  of  this  report — are  as  follows: 

In  our  judgment,  a  marriage  law  enacted  by  Congress  would  be  an  efficient  aux- 
iliary in  the  suppression  of  polygamy.  Ut  is  asserted  and  generally  believed  by  non- 
Mormons  in  this  Territory  that  plural  marriage  is  still  practiced  here  in  secret.  We 
would  recommend  that  Congress  enact  a  law  declaring  all  future  marriages  in  this 
Territory  null  and  void  unless  they  are  contracted  and  evidenced  in  the  manner  pro- 
vided by  the  act.  For  example:  that  all  marriages  shall  be  solemnized  in  certain 
designated  public  places,  artd  witnessed  by  such  persons  and  registered  in  such 
public  offices  as  to  make  the  proof  of  marriage  morally  certain;  providing,  also,  that 
the  person  officiating  in  the  marriage  ceremony,  together  with  the  parties  and  wit- 
nesses, shall  make  their  affidavits  against  polygamy,  and  set  forth  the  time  and  place 
and  other  particulars  relating  to  the  marriage,  or  allow  marriages  to  be 
solemnized  in  private,  but  with  the  like  guarantees  of  registration,  affidavits,  wit- 
nesses, etc.,  and  in  either  case  providing  penalties  for  violation  of  the  act  by  any  of 
-the  persons  concerned  therein.  In  making  this  suggestion  we  omit  the  details, 
which  can  readily  be  supplied  by  reference  to  the  marriage  acts  of  most  of  the  States. 

In  our  former  report  we  adverted  to  the  law  of  this  Territory  conferring  on  women 
the  right  of  suffrage.  This  law  was  enacted  by  the  Territorial  legislature  some 
twelve  years  ago.  Of  course,  it  is  competent  for  Congress  to  repeal  or  annul  this 
law.  Without  expressing  any  opinion  on  the  question  of  women  suffrage  in  general, 
we  are  satisfied  that,  owing  to  the  peculiar  state  of  affairs  in  Utah,  this  law  is  an  ob- 
struction to  the  speedy  solution  of  the  vexed  question. 

In  the  prosecution  of  polygamy  cases  here  it  is  difficult  to  prove  the  first  or  legal 
marriage.  We  would  suggest  as  a  remedy  that  the  first  or  legal  wife  be  declared  by 
act  of  Congress  a  competent  witness  in  sUch  prosecutions. 


Il6  THE   TERRITORY   OF    UTAH. 

Under  the  act  of  Congress  by  virtue  of  whose  provisions  this  Commission  was  ap- 
pointed, the  people  of  Utah  appear  to  be  put  upon  probation  until  a  legislative  as- 
sembly elected  under  the  provisions  of  the  act  shall  meet  and  pass  the  requisite  laws 
concerning  registration  and  election. 

If,  however,  the  next  session  of  the  legislative  assembly,  elected  under  the  act  of 
Congress,  shall  fail  to  respond  to  the  will  of  the  nation,  Congress  should  have  no 
hesitation  in  using  extraordinary  measures  to  compel  the  people  of  this  Territory  to 
obey  the  laws  of  the  land. 

The  present  legislature,  chosen  at  the  August  election,  is  com- 
posed wholly  of  Mormons,  none  of  whom,  however,  live  in  polygamy. 
This  legislature  will  convene  in  January  next.  It  will  be  their  duty, 
under  the  act  of  1882,  to  adopt  measures,  in  conformity  with  the 
provisions  of  that  law,  for  the  suppression  of  polygamy.  Whether 
the  legislature  will  take  such  action,  may  not  properly  be  discussed 
by  us  in  advance  of  Xhit  opportunity  given  them  by  the  law  to  do  so. 
If  they  shall  fail  in  this  respect  when  the  time  shall  come  for  them 
to  act,  this  Commission  will  be  prepared  to  recommend,  and  Con- 
gress certainly  will  not  delay  the  adoption  of,  the  most  stringent 
measures  compatible  with  the  limitations  of  the  Constitution  that 
may  be  considered  necessary  for  the  suppression  of  this  great  evil. 
In  view  of  the  fact  that  this  contingency  might  come,  we  have  al- 
ready given  the  subject  of  such  further  legislation  much  study  and 
reflection,  and  will  be  ready  at  the  proper  time,  if  the  case  requires, 
to  promptly  present  our  views  for  the  consideration  of  the  President 
and  Congress. 

In  the  interim  between  the  November  election  for  Delegate  to 
Congress  and  the  general  election  in  August,  1883,  municipal  elec- 
tions were  held  in  a  number  of  cities  and  towns^  under  rules  and 
orders  of  this  Board. 

But  the  most  important  election  was  that  of  August  6,  1883,  a 
general  election  for  members  of  the  legislative  assembly,  probate 
judges,  clerks  of  the  county  courts,  assessors  and  collectors,  county 
recorders,  sheriffs,  county  treasurers,  county  superintendents  of  dis- 
trict schools,  and  other  county  officers,  and  many  precinct  officers, 
numbering  in  all  nine  hundred  and  sixty  that  were  elected,  all  of 
whom,  as  well  as  all  the  voters,  are  monogamists. 

In  June,  prior  to  the  election,  the  Commission  caused  a  revision 
of  the  registration  to  be  made  in  all  the  prrecincts  of  the  Territory, 
excluding  all  polygamists  from  the  lists,  an  abstract  of  which, 
marked  "A,"  page  65,  is  hereto  appended. 


THE   TERRITORY   OF    UTAH.  II7 

The  election  was  conducted,  in  general,  in  a  quiet  and  orderly 
manner.  The  total  number  of  votes  cast  was  31,961,  against  27,923 
at  the  last  November  election.  The  principal  falling  off  in  the  vote 
was  on  the  part  of  Gentiles,  or  Liberal  party.  In  November  the 
total  vote  of  the  People's  (or  Mormon)  party  was  23,039;  Liberal, 
4,884.  In  August,  1883,  the  total  vote  of  the  People's  party  was 
30,508;  Liberal,  1,453;  from  which  it  appears  that  large  numbers  of 
the  Liberals  refrained  from  voting,  a  fact  much  to  be  regretted, 
for  the  reason  that  it  is  believed  that  by  proper  effort  and  "good 
management,"  one  or  more  non-Mormons  might  have  been  elected 
to  the  legislative  assembly,  who  would  have  the  opportunity  of  put- 
ting the  majority  on  record. 

In  pursuance  of  the  ninth  section  of  the  act  of  Congress,  the 
Commission  appointed  a  board  of  five  canvassers  to  canvass  the  re- 
turns of  the  election,  except  those  for  members  of  the  legislative 
assembly,  which  under  the  act  are  to  be  canvassed  by  this  Commis- 
sion. 

After  public  notice  in  the  newspapers,  the  said,  board  of  canvas- 
^sers  assembled,  with  the  members  of  this  Commission,  at  Salt  Lake 
City,  and  the  election  returns  were  canvassed,  the  result  ascertain- 
ed, and  certificates  of  election  were  awarded. 

Recently  some  ten  suits  were  instituted  in  the  Third  District 
Court  of  Utah,  by  Mormons,  against  the  members  of  this  Commission, 
complaining  that  they  had  been  unjustly  deprived  of  the  right  to 
register  and  vote.  These  are  understood  to  be  test  cases,  designed 
to  contest  the  constitutionality  of  the  Edmunds  act,  as  well  as  the 
legal  construction  which  we  put  upon  its  provisions.  These  suits 
are  still  undecided,  and  are  likely  to  be  appealed  to  the  Supreme 
Court  of  the  United  States. 

It  has  been  asserted  that  polygamic  marriages  have  increased 
since  the  passage  of  the  Edmunds  act;  on  the  contrary,  we  have  the 
opinion  of  many  Mormons  and  non- Mormons  that  they  have  com- 
paratively decreased  since  the  passage  of  said  act.  After  diligent 
inquiry,  we  believe  the  latter  conclusion  is  correct.  But  the  Utah 
legislature  will  have  the  opportunity  of  satisfying  the  country  on 
this  particular  subject  by  passing  such  a  public  marriage  act  as  that 
which  we  have  suggested  to  Congress. 

By  this  and  such  other  legislation  as  we  have  indicated,  they  will 
give  the  Government  assurance  of  their  loyalty  and  patriotism,  and 
avert  a  contest  that  cannot  but  result  in  their  discomfiture. 


Il8  THE  TERRITORY   OF   UTAH. 

In  concluding  this  report  v/e  consider  it  proper  to  commend  the 
zeal  of  the  Governor  of  Utah  in  his  eiforts  to  enforce  the  law.
